User Reviews

It's witchcraft.
3 March 2004 | by suspiria10See all my reviews

When an 18th-Century witch is captured by local townsfolk and dispatched in the middle of a like by way of dunking, her final words are that of her return to seek her revenge. Flash forward 200 years , when a woman driving along the same lake is run off the road by unseen forces and possessed by the witch there will be hell to pay.

A fun film with one of the worse witch makeups in movie history. The film has its' endearing moments such as a car chase at the end that reminded me of a Keystone Cops flick. Some cheesy dubbing and even cheesier acting made it enjoyable for me.
